removing ticks & axes from 3d plot

I need help on how to remove the ticks and axes lines on a 3d plot. I got rid of the tick labels using

ax.w_xaxis.set_ticklabels([’’]) but I haven’t been able to figure out how to do the ticks themselves.

Also, is there a way to remove the gray background & grid to have a free standing 3d plot?

In v1.0.1, there is no easy way to do this. However, when v1.1.0 gets officially released and the documentation is uploaded, I will post some links to show how to do this.

Cheers!

David,

In v1.1.0, you can use ax.set_frame_on(False) to keep the panels from being drawn. This will also prevent the ticks, ticklabels, axis labels and such from being drawn.

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/mpl_toolkits/mplot3d/api.html#mpl_toolkits.mplot3d.axes3d.Axes3D.set_frame_on

I hope this helps!
